This junction is terribly out of date and it really can't handle the traffic congestion of both highways.

Also added to today's vehicular carnage: Serious crash this AM NB US-23 at 223 (Five mile post near/at end of constr zone in Monroe County). AM crash grey compact car WB I-94 at WB M-14 entrance ramps (A2 west side). Rollover in York Twp. Toyota car fire on EB M-14 passing lane east of Dixboro Road around 730 p tonight. WB M-14, west of Dixboro Road, at about 730 PM tonight a rolled over bronze car - maybe a Ford? - with ambulances/everything there. NOT a particularly good day for motoring in Washtenaw.
